Knowing that we had only a short trip back to the marina, we had a leisurely morning in Kumlu Buku. Tom and James took the rib out into the bay and put it through its paces
and there was time for a swim before lunch.
When we left Kumlu Buku we tried to realign and calibrate the wind instrument. This involved turning the boat through two complete turns and then motoring into the wind whilst pressing various buttons on the instrument. As there was no wind to motor into, this proved to be an impossible task, so we gave up and decided to send Tom up the mast to do it manually when we got back. We motored back to the marina and were lucky to find a good spot on Juliet pontoon. Once we were safely tied up, Tom went up the mast. He tried out the new 'bosun's chair' which is really a climbing harness and gave it the thumbs up because it didn't crush his nuts!

Dinner on board consisted of tuna pasta bake, made by Tom, which was delicious, followed by a quiet evening playing cards and reading - oh yes, and being trounced at Su Doku by Tom!
Steve thought it would be a good idea to have a Su Doku competition, issued us all with a photocopied puzzle and set us off. He, James and I were not even halfway to solving it when Tom announced he had finished. He then went on to complete another before we had even finished the first! He ended up giving us all lessons on technique, but none of us had the speed or ability to even begin to compete. We decided that was enough Su Doku!
